Room was just right for our needs. We had 6 people and stayed in an adjoining two bedroom. There are a lot of bugs but no issues with Mosquitos. The reason there are bugs is that the hotel is located in a very naturalistic surrounding so if you're not into nature this may not be your cup of tea. It...

We just returned from the Lost Iguana Resort, and we stayed in a deluxe room, lower level with the outdoor shower. What a great room! The room was pretty, the private outdoor hot tub was awesome at nightime with the night sounds of the rainforest, the view was perfect of the volcano, even in bed. And I just loved the...

I stayed here for 2 nights in June with my 14 year old daughter. Good points: Beautiful view of volcano, service was excellent and friendly, nice pool bar. Louis at the bar was super friendly and even took the time to call us in our room and tells us the gardners had caught a large viper on the property and...

Our stay at the Lost Iguana Resort & Spa far exceeded our expectations. A boutique hotel situated in the middle of the rainforest, the Lost Iguana offers a luxurious and secluded place to relax after experiencing all that Costa Rica has to offer. Our vacation began with the long drive (approximately 3 hours) from the San Jose airport. If you...

Every year my daughter and me are trying to take vacation and escape to Costa Rica. We just came back from Lost Iguana and love it. Driving from San Jose was great experience. The resort is located on the hills with amazing views of Volcano from every room. You are surrounded with rainforest, rivers and waterfalls. Great hiking around resort,...

My husband and I just got back from a 4 night/5 day trip celebrating our 7th anniversary and we can't say enough about how beautiful the property is and how helpful and friendly the staff are. The property is spread out over 120 acres-literally in the middle of the Rainforest. Each building has only 4 rooms so it felt very...

Lost Iguana is nestled about 4 miles from the Volcan Areanal and our suite 43 - had the best views. We are a family of 5 and all were very comfortable. It is the rain Forrest so we dealt with some BIG bugs. The activities are amazing - La Roca Canyoneering was the best and only 10 minutes from hotel....

When booking, we did not appreciate how far we were from town until we finally arrived at Lost Iguana. It is critical to take advantage of the shuttles that the hotel employs to get folks to and from town. The reception and staff were very hospitable and we were greeted by the manager, who had relatives in Texas. She gave...
